Schulz Organic Dairy is a finalist in the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2020 – Innovative Products or Services category.
Located in Timboon, south-west Victoria, Schulz Organic Dairy set out to bottle their milk in reusable glass bottles.
Following a sell-out trial of hand-bottled milk at Farmers’ Markets, Schultz crowd-funded to purchase equipment and produce quantities required to retail their milk in the broader Victorian market.
Schulz now delivers 3000 glass bottles of organic milk weekly, to over 50 retailers Victoria-wide, with an excellent return rate of 95% of bottles refilled and reissued. The initiative has averted 10,068kg of plastic bottles from landfill.
